THERE are less than ten days to go till the launch of Wellbeing Radio, which will broadcast across the UK, USA and North America.
Wellbeing Radio, which has been developed in Scotland, will go live on 12 noon on Wednesday, 1 January 2020, with a packed schedule of programmes designed to promote physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Listeners in Scotland, the UK and ‘across the pond’ will be able to tune in 24 hours a day to hear health and wellbeing advice from leading experts, talk shows and discussions, interviews, ancient yogic wisdom, meditation and relaxation techniques, mindful children’s stories and more.
The new station will broadcast across the UK, USA and Canada and feature a line-up of carefully-selected presenters from around the world who are experts in their chosen fields.
They include seasoned broadcaster and voiceover artist, JJ Stenhouse, who is based in Fife; clinical psychologist Dr Sarah Madagan, who will present a weekly ‘Loved Up on Life’ programme; and French-born Radical Rest Yogi, Sophie Leon, who is an expert in rest and relaxation.
The station’s flagship programme will be ‘Wake Up the Right Way’, a breakfast show presented by Zen yoga teacher and Wellbeing Radio co-founder, Scott Hutchison-McDade (pictured), and friends between 7am and 9am every weekday. The show will be preceded by a half-hour ‘Rise & Shine’ meditation between 6.30am and 7am.
The schedule is also set to include a ‘Holistic Scotland Hour’ delivered by Holistic Scotland Magazine, which is one of Scotland’s only natural health and wellbeing titles.
The show, which will broadcast every evening between 8 and 9pm from 7 January, will be an extension of the magazine, offering even more of its natural health and wellbeing content, which is already consumed by circa 35,000 readers throughout Scotland and in the UK, Europe, Australia and the
Other scheduled programmes include ‘Music for the Mind’, ‘The Beauty Detective’ and ‘Nature Therapy & Beyond’.
Co-founder and broadcasting director, Scott Hutchison-McDade, said: “I’m excited to present this multimedia platform for health and wellbeing. After nearly a year in the making, I’m really pleased to see it come to fruition.
“After launching one of Scotland’s first healing sound therapies to combine silent disco technology with binaural beats earlier this year, it seems like a natural progression.
“Please check out the website for lots of insightful health and wellbeing articles and don’t forget to tune in on January 1.”
